Florida's RNC delegation a secret

By

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Aug. 5 (UPI) -- Florida Republicans refused to release the names of the state's delegates to the national convention in New York later this month, citing privacy concerns.

"Some delegates are not comfortable speaking and don't want their information given out, and we've honored their requests. Our priority is putting the interests and welfare of our delegates first," Florida party spokesman Joseph Agostini told the Miami Herald.

Reporters and editors were provided with contact information weeks in advance for Florida's delegation to the Democratic National Convention in Boston last month, including photos of some of the more high-profile delegates. Most other state Republican delegations are providing contact information as well.

"This is the same administration that has fought for three years to hide the records of Dick Cheney's meetings with energy executives," said Matt Miller, a Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry's Florida campaign. "We should not be surprised they're hiding their delegates."
